OHIO: ARC Ohio Merges with Violet's Cupboard


Gay People's Chronicle (Ohio) (04.19.13)

The 300 clients of Violet’s Cupboard in Akron, Ohio, will now be served by a new office of the AIDS Resource Center (ARC), Ohio. Violet’s Cupboard, which had been functioning for 25 years, provided HIV testing, housing and education, outreach, referrals, and risk reduction services for persons with HIV infection as well as case management for drug assistance programs and health issues. ARC Ohio is an AIDS service organization that extends over most of the state. The employees of Violet’s Cupboard were assimilated into ARC Ohio on April 1. In addition to covering the services originally provided by Violet’s Cupboard, ARC Ohio will work with HIV testing sites in Cleveland to bring newly diagnosed individuals into treatment and to re-engage those who had dropped out of treatment. These efforts also will be carried out across certain counties.
